So, looking forward to the semis between Sharapova and Serena Williams in the Qatar Open. Gonna be interesting cuz if Serena wins, she becomes the World no.1 and if Sharapova wins, she still has a chance to get her hands on a diamond studded trophy...
My dad is gonna be there... (I asked him to take cotton for his ears) and he thinks he is gonna enjoy the match cuz according to him, it is 'Beauty vs Beast'!
So I think Williams is gonna win it in 3 sets, what do you guys feel?
She's guaranteed number 1 anyway - she gained the top ranking with her win yesterday. I also think she's going to win today - Sharapova has a terrible record against her. But Serena wasn't in good form yesterday - if Petra had kept her nerve she'd have won - so there's always a chance of an upset.
I agree about Fed's appearance fee - but 1 million euros seems to be standard fare for getting the top players to play 250s. There's always the danger of them turning up for the money and not taking the tournament seriously.
